stuff

for those who asked:

fluffy peanut butter frosting-
1/2 cup butter/margarine
1 c peanut butter
3 tbsp milk
2 c icing sugar

blend butter and peanut butter. alternate adding a bit of milk, and some icing sugar, blend it all up. then whip it for about 3 minutes until it is fluffy.

then- to get the look I had- and to get a real nice amount of icing on the cupcakes, use a really big icing tip- those really big ones! I used the star shaped one, then fill up your icing bag, and pipe the icing in circles, starting at the outside, going slowly, to allow lots of icing to load up, then in the middle do a nice little pile. then sprinkle with some of those chocolate sprinkles.
wha la.
delish.

go forth and bake. and eat. and enjoy.

and Kara- my quit is small- 50 x 64 inches, I cut my scraps all 6 inches wide, and of random heights, and my white strips in the middle are all about 4 inches wide. I don't know if that helps at all. but it is easy and would be super cute for your girls beds. you would just have to make more strips, or make them all wider.

now, today I am going to quilt Sadie's quilt. or bust.
